Wall Street Journal reporters Kate Kelly and Dennis Berman could be the latest editorial staffers from the financial paper to make the move to on-air reporters for CNBC. According to an industry source, there is interest in both and Berman has been seen at the CNBC office.
A CNBC spokesperson told TVNewser that they “do not comment on who we consider or who we talk to for a role at CNBC.” Both are highly regarded financial journalists and have appeared on the network in the past.
With Charlie Gasparino gone to Fox Business Network, it appears CNBC is seeking new seasoned business reporters to bring on board. The Wall Street Journal is a logical starting point as Nik Deogun, the former WSJ Deputy Managing Editor, started as CNBC’s managing editor just last month.
Kelly’s husband, Kyle Pope, is the editor of the NY Observer.
CNBC confirms that the network has recently signed a handful of new contributors including Former White House Communications Chief Anita Dunn, Jim Nussle, Deutsche economist Joe Lavorgna, and Hitha Prabhakar, who used to appear on Fox Business Network.
